Fair Play Policy Update [WG Brags about Banning WoT Cheaters]

Offtopic: I’d like to say sorry for being late. I hate being tangled up with stuff I need to do for my family (like attending funerals). It just sucks. I promise to post more this weekend, if possible. I’m not in the best mood right now, too.

Now we are back to yet another post where we get to see how many players from each server got the smooth touch of the banhammer. Of course, it’s a normal thing for our favorite Belarussian company to ban players who do not follow the rules, just that WG loves bragging about it each time in order to show their „epic achievement” to us. :mrgreen: At least they do something, right?

NA:

275 accounts were penalized for the first time and 88 repeat offenders received permanent bans.

EU:

2,891 accounts were penalized for the first time and 898 repeat offenders received permanent bans.

ASIA:

201 accounts were penalized for the first time and 51 repeat offenders received permanent bans.

RU:

18871 accounts have been temporarily blocked for the first violation and 5453 accounts were blocked indefinitely for repeated violations of the rules.

  1. “just that WG loves bragging about it each time in order to show their „epic achievement” to us”

    They do it “exactly” because players were crying that they don’t do it. It only took you guys four waves to become sarcastic about it, good job~

    1. the point is, too few players get banned on other servers than RU, so I don’t really like it. They should tell how many players they banned per year in order for it to matter lol

        So you think you know *exactly* how many cheaters there are, I see. Better than Wargaming. Wow, want to help them with it?

        “They should tell how many players they banned per year in order for it to matter lol”

        Since it isn’t even a year since the first ban wave it’s kinda hard to do, isn’t it? Also if you are curious about how many people they banned since then, you can just add numbers from four posts (actually three, since the first one was without repeated offenders), which I guess is hard or something.

    2. People were complaining that WG did nothing.
      And now WG is showing us that maybe 1 % of cheaters get banned every 3 months (I’m sure 1 % is way more than reality already), and they sound as proud as if they solved world hunger (when they’re actualy just doing their job – for once).

      I get that they want to show that they started to react ; and better late than never. But they make it sound as if it was a huge deal when it shouldnt even have been a source of debate to begin with because if they gave half a f*** about their game they wouldnt have waited 5-6 years before starting to ban cheaters (not counting the times where they banned idiots who were showing themselves cheating on twitch or youtube).

      We shouldnt applaud them for every xave of bans. If anything could say “that’s about time”, let’s not let them feel like heroes for doing a thing that should have been done since the beggining without the need of the community complaining about it.

        900 people banned on EU (just permanent ones). So you say that’s 1 %, so 90,000 users of cheat mods? On a server that has 1M weekly players?

        Let me ask you – do you really think there are around 10 % of people using cheats? And I mean serious cheats – bots, aimbots, etc.

        “We shouldnt applaud them for every xave of bans. If anything could say “that’s about time”, let’s not let them feel like heroes for doing a thing that should have been done since the beggining without the need of the community complaining about it.”

        If you have such approach, then:
        1) You sound like a jerk.
        2) They might not do it the next time, because there’s obviously no point in it – you will hate them anyway, whether they do it or not, so they can save the work spent on the bans, right?

        1. I’m not saying I hate them, stop deforming my words. I am happy to see them finaly reacting to cheaters.
          I’m just saying there is no reason to party about it either because this is such a basic thing to do, if we start saying it’s the best thing they’ve ever done they wont put more effort into it.

          And on a side note, fanboys spending their time kissing WG’s ass whenever they do the slightest thing good (or rather “dont fuck up for once”) is as bad for the game developpement as haters never admitting when WG actualy does something good for once.

          I never said these actions were bad and WG were morons ; this is definitely a good thing for the game. I just said fighting cheats is supposed to be part of their job and not a whole new thing to be proud of for a company that owns such a huge MMO. This is good ; but this is normal, stop making it sound like a whole new feature that will revolutionize the game, if WG did their job correctly they should not even have to throw every banwave at us in numbers to look like they do something – if they need to show this sort of thing to gain players trust it just shows how badly they handled things before.

          And you on the other hand you do not seem to dislike a lot of (if any) things with WG. They could start selling tier X tanks for real money that you would still call anyine complaining a hater and keep admiring WG whatever they do :/

  2. Nice idea WG, with the lowest online numbers in the game history you went to brag about how you ban people ? Honestly, how many people in WG HQ actually played the game in the past 6 months ?
    Here is a simple fact: every day on RU server there are about 220-250k users of ZJ mods (that are ALL forbidden). That is 220-250k PER day. Pls WG, ban them all. Lets see how long will the game survive after that bald move.

    This just shows how much is WG detached from reality. This should have been done 3-4 years ago. Now, the only option is to introduce some forbidden mods into the game as advanced perks. Any other solution will even more draw people away.

    Nice timing WG, as always – useless…

      1. I highly doubt he gave his real/usable email. I mean, one would need to be incredibly stupid.
        And from what I know of this guy, he isn`t.

        1. Well he has a website full of cheats and never hid it. And got away with it.

          I mean at that point I dont see why he would need to be any more careful lol, it’s WG’s problem if they let him promote the mods. He just does it to show how WG dont care about it.

  3. Also, Plazma is right. There is a MASSIVE amount of “cheaters”.

    IMO, WG should just add ALL of these mods to the game client and call it a day. Also, they should make that a priority.

    Believe me, that is the only way to deal with something like this.

  4. My condolences and symphathy to you.

    Wargaming’s messaging on this subject doesn’t come across as bragging on me.

    By themselves a few hundred bans every month are never going eleminate cheating, and it isn’t really meant too. It’s meant too discourage “casual” cheaters and to show to non-cheaters that at least something is being done. For that they have to periodically remind people about it.

    Thanks for providing us with this invaluable site.

  5. Blah blah blah, etc.

    I figured it out, it’s so simple really.

    Most comments here are made by sad unhappy people that’ll find the shit-lining in everything. Nothing can be good by even the slightest, cus that’d mean being okay and feeling decent! Nope, gotta be a cesspool of shit and piss. “This game I invested so much time in is fucking doomed cus I feel it! Just like my life! Let it end please!!!”

    And pandering to this pathetic crowd are the shitters like rita status report (who can barely speak English), and now this place. You’re nothing but agitating a bunch of sad people into angry sad people for your own gains. At least FTR had specific grievances toward WG EU rather than this dumb shitposting at everything WG does.

    Pathetic

      However all of you bitch and moan regardless of what WG does simply because it’s WG.

      Pubbies: “WG needs to ban cheaters!”

      WG starts banning cheaters

      Pubbies: “WG needs to publicize ban numbers!”

      WG starts posting ban numbers

      Pubbies: “WG is bragging about banning players/they havnt banned everyone yet/bitchbitchbitch”

      It’s pathetic. It really is.
